Condx were much better than last year, so expectations were tempered by that experience. We were all pleasantly surprised to have some good openings on 15 meters and also on 10 meters late Sunday. The bands seemed to open fairly early to EU with some strong signals but they often would not hear or copy us. It was often frustrating. The QRM and maybe the QRN levels at some DX locations must be fairly high. We had an experienced team and thought we would do as well as conditions would allow. Everyone pulled their weight and radios were always manned and multipliers were being chased. We always had two operators during the overnight hours regardless of rate or lack of rate. Everyone spelled each other to make sure we were as rested as could be expected. Zach, KD9ESP joined the team this year. He is a 21 year old senior Electrical Engineering student at Bradley University. Zach was a great addition and made a lot of QSOs. He listened to the experienced operators and learned very quickly how to S&P and Run. His enthusiasm for working a new multiplier was awesome. He is a club member of BUARC, W9JWC. We had a few more receiving antennas this year. This just gave us a few more choices on 80 and 160. The team used FlexRadios 6500/6700 with Maestros with the latest Alpha software. We also used N1MM Plus networked. Thanks for the QSOs and fun. See you in CQ WW CW.
